I am not a DD, but i think your proposition is a good one ( i don't have
test your package though ). I visited the freebsd fork page and i think
it is pretty usable ( just as the old one, but this one is maintained ).

Just a question : why do you go directly to the unstable version of
freebsd's cvsweb ?

Go ahead and good luck
